What is ActiveMatch?

ActiveMatch is a free online service helping individuals to find their (near) perfect exercise partner or small group. The purpose of this service is to help women who have been diagnosed with cancer connect with similar women who are looking for support and guidance to help start, continue, or change their exercise routines.

How does ActiveMatch work?

The first step is to sign up and create a profile by answering some basic questions. This profile will be used to help find possible matches for your exercise needs and it will become part of a database that can be searched by other women to find exercise match(es), contact each other, and start exercising or providing support.
